I'm afraid, this is caused by Windows UAC restrictions. The only workaround is to run Ranorex in administrative mode and mainly, there must be disabled UAC. There is no way around this. Ranorex (any TA tool) cannot interact with UAC limited apps. Check also this post...
If you cannot disable UAC, your only hope is to use image-based automation.
